Samsung Wave: world's first DivX HD phone

Just before it's official US release, Samsung has announced that the Wave smartphone is the world's first phone to receive certification for HD DivX playback, supporting 720p HD video. The Wave also has Bluetooth 3.0 and WiFi 802.11n standard, and a gorgeous 3.3-inch Super AMOLED On-Cell display. The Wave will run on bada, Samsung's new Smartphone platform.

Samsung also announced that the upcoming Galazy S, with a 4.5" display is also certified for DivX HD. With its Super-AMOLED screen, HD should be pretty stunning.

Watching movies on the go just got better. What do you think — on a screen that small, does HD really matter to you?
